I recently had a previous event come to mind. I had met some Bahais and we were talking about religion. The thing that came up was that I didn't believe Muhammad was a prophet but that he was central to Bahai. We ended up talking for awhile never really got past the issue.

Was Bahaullah a "Bahai", please?
Bahaullah was sure not a "Bahai" as per the core book of Bahaullah named by him as "Kitab-i-Iqan".
Jesus was not a "Christian", he was a Jew, he was "Baptized" posthumously as virtually being a follower of a new religion "Christianity" by Paul/Church and or the...
